Tessa Violet Q&A

Introduce yourselves – tell us about you, your background and music.

Tessa Violet. Singer/songwriter. Alternative music. Love live music and amazing songwriting. Wrote my first song when I was 23, been going ever since.

What’s your favourite thing to do in Manchester or where do you aim for when visiting?

I don’t think I’ve ever spent any time in Manchester besides inside venues playing shows! Excited to explore!

Which other artists are you going to try and check out at NBHD?

I’m not familiar with too many of the other acts but super eager to walk around and catch some new tunes!

Who would you most like to collaborate with?

I actually don’t do too much collaboration! Definitely open to the idea of it.

Can you remember the first song you wrote when you were young? What was it called?

I semi-remember it. I was 23 and it was in 3/4 and very sad haha.

If you could have a meal with three musicians, dead or alive, who would it be?

Paul McCartney, Joan Jett, and David Bowie!

Tell us a story from your time on the road…

Sometimes my bass player and I hide dirty socks in each others suitcase/backpack/stage set up. Anywhere they can surprise.

What can people expect from your NBHD set?

A great show. We love to play and the songs are thoughtful and catchy. Come see our set!

Plans for the rest of the year?

Touring the UK and EU! My first time playing Europe so very stoked on that!

Message for the fans?

Rock and roll!
